The Marcsmen Christmas

Among the more unexpected takeaways from the Pitch Perfect franchise is the appeal of a cappella groups within a contemporary context. In a city steeped in age-old traditions, it should come as no surprise that San Antonio is home to celebrated outfits like Friends in Harmony and The Marcsmen — competitive ensembles rooted in the decidedly old-fashioned realm of barbershop harmony. Formed by Texas State University music students and now officially established among the ranks of the revered Barbershop Harmony Society, The Marcsmen boast a sprawling membership that includes South Texas vocalists ranging in age from 13 to 70. Currently providing live accompaniment for The Playhouse’s production of Peter Rothstein’s All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 (a historical play based on an unlikely exchange between English and German soldiers during World War I), the all-male troupe is set to take center stage with The Marcsmen Christmas, an a cappella holiday program featuring high-profile support from Orlando-based Barbershop Harmony Society International Championship winners Main Street.

Dad's Karaoke
2615 Mossrock Dr., (210) 267-5703,
When “karaoke” is in the name, you can expect a venue name to have its shit together. This spot is perfect for times you just wanna get drunk and scream into a microphone. Slightly sleazy, the bar is a solid option for hours of uninhibited fun for just about anyone, especially first-timers trying to get their feet wet in the art of karaoke. Expect a crowd — or shall we say audience?

The White Rabbit
Look, most San Antonio music fans have no complaints with the Paper Tiger, a club that consistently brings tons of great touring acts to town. Even so, some who cut their teeth on the St. Mary's Strip still have fond memories of the White Rabbit, the venue that previously occupied the building. It's understandable that folks of a certain age, whether they played the older club or just caught shows there, would have some nostalgia tied up in the Rabbit.
